SANDY, Utah (AP) - Jefferson Savarino scored the go-ahead goal in the 61st minute and Real Salt Lake spoiled Diego Valeri’s record-setting Saturday night with a 2-1 victory over the Portland Timbers.

Valeri set an MLS record by scoring in his eighth consecutive match when he tied it at 1 on a header in the 47th minute.

Albert Rusnak opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a right-footed blast that powered through goalkeeper Jeff Attinella’s glancing deflection. Savarino bent a left-footed shot from the edge of 18-yard box into the upper left corner.
